Unrecognized Greatness!

"If you have only seen John Ritter in "Three's Company" or "8 Simple Rules", you should see this film. One of his first film breakaway roles from Jack Tripper, his true talent is very visible in this picture. It is a sad task to write this review, being that Mr. Ritter is no longer with us. But his legacy of comedy, and drama, will be a memorial of the talent he had. If you want a feel good movie filled with a sense of hope, and an ultimate happy ending, this is the film for you, if you just love John Ritter this is the film for you. 5 stars my seem too much to some people, but for the comedy, charisma, and color it contains, this movie deserves it! Watch it!"
Excellent memories from this film

"This is a true "feel good" film. I remember watching it many times as a child. The message was moral and the story of "real guy turning hero" never dies out. The fact it is John Ritter in his prime just adds to the draw. In addition, Anne Archer puts in a strong and lovable performance as the love interest.Don't miss this film. For kids though, the violence and mild language could be tough. I suggest 9 or older (if I remember the language issues correctly). Best to pre-screen before showing it to the children."
Excellent film

"I remember seeing this many years ago on HBO and getting hooked. After years of being out of print, it's good to see it available again. John Ritter's character is an incredibly likeable guy who finds that the adage is true that "no good deed goes unpunished" as he allows his scruples to be corrupted by Convy's movie-producer role. Really a great film, and definitely one to add to your movie collection."
